Jeremiah Attaochu ’10 Launches New Foundation and Hosts First Annual Blood Drive

Jeremiah was inspired to create Glory’s Hope Foundation because of his sister, who has sickle cell disease. He says, “I think it’s important to bring light to the disease and educate people.”
Named after his sister, Glory’s Hope was founded to support research, education, and create awareness of sickle cell in the United States as well as in Africa.

Jeremiah hopes to encourage and empower everyone, but especially African Americans, to learn about sickle cell and donate blood. “Using the platform and the resources that I have in my current career, I want to let people know that they can get involved. An important and effective way to join the effort is by donating blood.”
